    (1) Gaano ka kadalas pabalik-balik ng Pilipinas? (2) Saan naninirahan ang karamihan sa pamilya mo? Sa Amerika o Pilipinas? (3) Ang Nanay ko ay galing ng Cebu. or you could say "Ang Nanay ko ay tubong Cebu."

    That's for Tagalog. I don't know in Cebuano. :)

    Other ways of saying these:

    Do you go/travel back to the Philippines often?
    - Madalas ka bang pumunta (go) sa Pilipinas? = Do you often go to the Philippines?
    - Madalas ka bang bumiyahe papuntang (travel to) Pilipinas? = Do you often travel to the Philippines?
    - Madalas ka bang bumalik (return) sa Pilipinas? = Do you often return to the Philippines?
    - Madalas ka bang bumisita (visit) sa Pilipinas? = Do you often visit the Philippines?

    2) where does most of your family live? In USA or Philippines?
    - Nasaan ang karamihan sa/ng pamilya mo? = Where are most of your family?
    - Saan nakatira ang karamihan sa/ng pamilya mo? = Where do most of your family live?

    (You may hear either "sa" or "ng" used for "of" in such a sentence.)

    In the USA or the Philippines?
    - Sa US o sa Pilipinas? (we usually just say "US" for "USA")
    - Sa America o sa Pilipinas?

    3) my mother is from Cebu
    - Ang nanay ko ay taga-Cebu. = My mother is from Cebu.
    - Ang nanay ko ay Cebuana. = My mother is from/a native of Cebu.
